A nice day trip is Put-In-Bay Ohio 3W2, or Latrobe PA for Sunday Brunch at the restaurant on the field spectacular flight in the fall. Heading East go to Old Rhienbeck Aerodrome, Rheinbeck NY for a weekend airshow of antique and historical aircraft.
Then plan a flight up the Hudson VFR corridor for a scenic flight of NYC
If you want to stay in NYC I would suggest Westchester County Airport
If you go south to the Bahamas as suggested previously head out to North Eluthra and take the water taxi to Harbour Island.
Here is a link for Fly-Ins
Visit KIAG and go tour Niagara Falls head north for a short flight to Toronto Canada downtown city airport where you can get a water ferry to the heart of Toronto for any type of entertainment or dining experiance you may desire.
Since you are still VFR try these sites to help plan flights and detirmine estimates of flight time.

Going north to Michigan and the Mackinaw Bridge (take a camera) and a stop on Mackinaw Island, they pick you up at the airport with a horse & carrage that's a nice weekend. Flying down over the Smokies and the east coast is always nice. I took a dive trip to the Bahamas when I was building my time.
